Ideas for deep pantry

My camper has a pantry that has shelves in it. It is really deep and somewhat narrow. Iím wondering what people do when they have one like this. Stuff in the back is really bad to reach plus everything in front of it has to be taken out, which is annoying. Anyone have any tips or tricks on how to use it?

I made some "shelves" and mounted them on drawer slides then put them on the pantry shelves. They then slide out allowing you to get to the back items easily. My wife loves them because it makes the pantry much more usable. I did put a lip on the shelf to keep items from falling off.

Can you by chance post a picture of the final product?

Unfortunately the trailer is stored 1 1/2 hour away. The next time I'm there I will.

I made drawers and what I call a 1/2 shelf for our '13 Forest River Vengence toy hauler.

Been in the cabinet trade for 50 year and the roll out shelves are the best solution. I have seen different ideas for pantrys over the years but adj. roll out are the best solution that I like.

Try this link. I'm going to do the same in our new seasonal unit. We had these in our previous trailer and it was very handy.

Our 2011 Georgetown has a pantry that's around 20" deep with 12"x12" openings for all three cubbies. The DW's solution was pull out wire racks that are almost the full depth of the cabinet. They are width adjustable and I needed to build up the cabinet floors to allow the baskets to clear the front lip of the openings. The wire racks are not on bearings but fit into "C" shaped rails mounted to the cabinet floor. The added friction of the rail system keeps the drawers from coming out when driving.

That looks like exactly what I need. It doesnít look too hard to do either.
